This restaurant is well worth searching out. The food is top quality and the service is too. We chose the set tasting menu (35 Euros) and treated ourselves to the wine pairing (15 Euros) and were well pleased with both.

What a find! Hidden in one of the narrow streets in Ribadesella is this wonderful restaurant. The degustation menu was our choice. The flavours were amazing and the presentation of each dish a work of art. Jaime Uz is a truly talented chef. The service was impeccable and the price very reasonable for a Michelin star restaurant.

One of the problems about eating out in Spain is that 95% of restaurants serve up the very same Spanish dishes. Quite often, the only difference is the price and the quality of the food but it just gets a little boring. We're spoiled in the UK where we have a huge range of food from all over the world...

A real gem in a quiet back pedestrian street. Jaime Uz is a fabulous and talented chef- creative, managing to balance flavors superbly. I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed the food - great appetizers (don't miss the scallops and the apple gazpacho), the terrific rice dishes (yummy carabinero risotto) and amazing desserts (make sure you order the...

My hubby and I treated ourselves to a meal here on a Friday night. We had the set meal for €35 per person. It consisted of several small taster dishes. Ranging from cod, shellfish and beef. The food was like a work of art and tasted wonderful. Like being on an episode of Masterchef. Service was excellent and we felt... More

I went to this restaurant alone and in clothes I use on the Camino. I went in thinking this is a very nice looking place, they won't want me here. Arbidel was nothing like that.. It was such a warm welcome the food was incredible (best I've had all trip) and the staff amazing. They were always smiling and happy... More

We were 5 and only 1 of 2 tables served that evening. The food was outstanding and the service right up there. It' s been the most expensive meal of our ongoing Northern Spain trip but worth it. Its Michelin star is well deserved.

My wife and I booked 21 persons for lunch at Arbidel, for a birthday party on a Tuesday afternoon. We ordered the Degustation menu. Wow, what a treat. We were there for over 3 hours, thoroughly enjoying the experience. Quite frankly, we were worried that taking 19 American guests for such an experience would be a problem with so many... More

The owner of the inn we were staying in recommended another restaurant which we could not find. So, wondering around this lovely little town we saw what looked like a street sign but was, in fact, a sign for this restaurant. Hidden down a little lane we found it, and, as we were somewhat off schedule for normal dining in... More

Although extremely expensive, the food was innovative and delicous. The seafood is top-notch with accommodating interesting preparations. My party of 6, all loved the black-squid-ink rice, which was freshy, salty and unusual in the most pleasant way. I was surprise that this tasting profile was enjoyed by even our younger "fast food" companions. Truly unique ways of preparing traditional northern... More
